How Having a Career Action Plan Helps You

The Career Action Plan is created with four non-linear mindsets that have tools, activities, and questions that will encourage you to think introspectively and differently about your career options.

Career Action Plan Mindsets:

• Learn About Yourself and Career Options– Discover who you are and what you are good at, and gain clarity about your career options.
• Prepare for Your Next Steps– Present yourself as a strong candidate and communicate your experiences effectively as you move towards your career goals.
• Develop Professionally– Evaluate the competencies you need to develop for your career interests.
• Build Experience – Apply the knowledge and competencies you are developing in a real world setting.
